Health Insurance

The Graduate Theological Union and participating member schools and institutions offer a medical insurance plan designed to provide students with complete medical coverage. This health insurance plan is available to ABSW students enrolled for at least six or more credits per semester.


If you are enrolled for nine (9) or more credits in any one semester, you must enroll in the GTU HIPS program, or provide proof of health insurance that has comparable benefits and costs. Enrollment in the HIPS plan is for the twelve months of the academic year beginning on September 1 and ending on August 31. Unless your eligibility to participate in the program changes, you will be enrolled for the entire year. Premiums for the plan are paid in two equal installments at the beginning of each semester. 


Enrollment applications are accepted only during these periods: August 1 to September 30 and January 1 to February 28.
